We are delighted to inform you that standards at Ambler are once again spectacular! And in particular pupils at the end of Y6 (summer 2016 cohort) performed excellently.

Excellent Pupil Achievement

The way pupils were assessed at the end of KS2 changed in 2015/16 – pupils are no longer given a level or no longer assigned a level, however, are said to be meeting the age-related expectations or are working below the age-related expectations or in some cases are working above the age-related expectations.  At this point, there is no historical data to compare our results to as this as it is the first time pupils have sat tests of this nature reported in this new way.  However, we do have national comparative data and Ambler’s performance is excellent when compared to the national data.  For more detailed information on the 2016 data (validated in December 2016), please view our 2016 SATs results

In all previous years, the school was judged on the proportion of pupils attaining a L2C+ in year 2 and a 4C+ in year 6.  Given the changes in the curriculum and the new, more challenging age related expectations pupils are now considered to have met the required standard if they perform roughly in line with an ‘old’ 2b or 4b.  In order to have some comparative data to support our understanding of ‘trends’ the brackets show the percentage of pupils at 2b+ and 4b+ in previous years.  This year’s data shows the proportion of pupils meeting of exceeding the required standard.
